As the title indicates, I am wondering which UK med. schools are receptive to qualified international students who are not 'charity cases.' I am well aware that the number of international spots is limited and that many of the spots are given to students that come from countries with 'inadequate medical facilities,' but I wasn't, until recently, aware that some medical schools only give international spots to students from countries with 'inadequate medical facilities.' One such school is Manchester. I politely asked 'admissions' a question and was tersely informed that all international spots are for students who come from countries 'with inadequate medical facilities.' So, are there any international students from first world countries that gained admittance to a UK medical school? Any North Americans? Which schools?
